Biden administration mocked for bragging about saving 16 cents on July 4th food

Americans can thank the Biden administration this year for saving 16 cents on the cost of food for their Fourth of July celebrations.

“Planning a cookout this year? Ketchup on the news,” the White House tweeted. “According to the Farm Bureau, the cost of a 4th of July BBQ is down from last year. It’s a fact you must-hear(d). Hot dog, the Biden economic plan is working. And that’s something we can all relish.”

The administration was mocked, criticized and outright castigated over the tweet, with many calling it an attempt to gaslight the American public about inflation. Following are some of the responses the administration received:

  • Elise Stefanik (R-NY): “Apparently, no one at the Biden @WhiteHouse has been to the gas station recently. The average price for a gallon of gas is $3.15. This is the HIGHEST price for a gallon of gas since 2014 and a 42% INCREASE from last year.”
  • Leftist Ed Oswald: “Housing costs are up by double digits, used cars are literally appreciating on dealer’s lots and you’re talking about a BBQ? The Trumpiness of this tweet is just gross. Might as well forget about everything else that’s way more expensive?”
  • NewsBusters editor Curtis Houck: “Lunacy and divorced from reality. One could argue this is worse than anything Trump tweeted from a policy perspective.”
  • Kayleigh McEnany: “If President Trump were in the White House… We wouldn’t have huge spikes in homicide & violent crime (except in Dem cities, sadly). We wouldn’t have a 21-year HIGH in illegal crossings. And we wouldn’t be celebrating pennies in savings as inflation everywhere else SKYROCKETS.”
  • Burgess Owens, R-Utah: “With an unprecedented humanitarian crisis at our border, soaring gas prices and more out-of-control spending that will cripple our future generations, the Biden administration is bragging about saving us $0.04 on sliced cheese.”
